Berlin's Exploit ed label has been hit t ing us wit h back to back 5-star EPs that usually end up topping the chart s a mont h lat er (Clapt
one's "Cream" / "Good T o Y ou" and Adana Twins' "Everyday" and "Strange" both reached thet op on Beat port and RA). "Secretly everyone is
drawn to mystery and nothing is more alluring t han an anonymous producer. Exploited's Claptone are no exception. Yet after just two releases
they are already riding high on the pinncacles ofsuccess. At the time of writing, "Cream" is sitting happily in t he Beat port T op 10, where it has
been nesting contently for the past two months. It's upbeat, deep house party grooves have been filling the DJ boxes of thousandsworldwide."
(Beatportal)The mysterious Claptone first burst onto the scene 5 months ago with an EP titled "She Loves You" featuring 4 tracks of soulful house
perfection. Alt hough not much is yet known ot her t han he wears a long, pointed-nose facemask to hide his identity, he's offto a great start
with tracks as golden as these. Definitely an artist worth following. The next EP for Exploit ed is already finished and will be released in
June.Tracks from Claptone have been supported by everyone from DJ Hell, to A-Trak, DJ Sneak, Soul Clap, Solomun, Azari III, Hot Chip, Noir, Julio
Bashmore, T ensnake, Eats Everything, Matthew Dear and Tim Sweeney.Reminiscent of the super patient, minimal, and downright seductive bootlegs that
Soul Clap was pushing out a couple of years ago (see Extravaganza, Sex In the Kitchen, and Rock the Boat) the new release from the mysterious act
Claptone entitled "Cream" utilizes the same tension and release tantra-esque production techniques with great success. Sampling one of the most
recognizable piano intros from the 90's hip hop cannon (Wu Tang's "C.R.E.A.M." if you haven't already figured out), Claptone twist this
nostalgic loop into a deep house dancefloor filler. Released on the steadily incredible Exploited Records imprint, this track has been popping up in
sets from the aforementioned Soul Clap to house maestro, DJ Sneak. Now the video promo for the release is just downright weird...silent films, clowns,
ballerinas...DJHell: "Cream is the first clubhit in 2012."
